  1. Hi – yes the Winter schedule is still in effect, the only difference is the “program” class changes which are noted on the site. Spring session is coming soon!

  2. Iam inquiring in regards to your noon yoga sessions, if myself and possible a co-worker were to do drop in classes, how do we know there will be room? As well as price, and we bring our own matt? Thanks sara

    1. Whups. I meant to add. That there usually is space for drop-ins – and if it is tight we can always skooch down to make room 🙂 Drop-ins are $11 each session. You are welcome to bring your own mat – but we also have a selection of studio mats for your convenience.

      Hope to see you there!

  3. Hi. Are you starting a new beginner’s yoga next year? 2019? I see it is a program, how does that work? Could I use a pass for those classes?
